Met up last week with Jacq Allan, Founder and Managing Director of  Diabetics with Eating Disorders (DWED). It was hot. A Phd student, researcher, teacher and musician, Jacqs is a busy woman.  A clever one too. Life isn’t just about diabetes. It’s about jobs, hobbies, passions, gripes and sometimes, just sitting around having a cold drink on a hot summer day.

Check out her website. DWED provides support, awareness, advocacy and action for carers and sufferers. You shouldn’t have to go it alone. Sometimes it helps to have an ally or two to lend support.
